MOTION capacity building: How to develop a theory of change for systems transformation?

One of the key goals of the MOTION project is to develop a community of practice and enhance capacity building in relation to monitoring, learning and evaluation (MEL) for transformative change. With that goal in mind, we implemented an online training session focused on sharing some of the key learnings of the MOTION project during the International Sustainability Transitions Conference (IST) 2020. The main aim of this session was to introduce participants, who were mainly project managers from EIT Climate-KIC and regional governments across Europe, to the Theory of Change methodology for a MEL framework – an approach that can help their organization develop interventions aimed at transformative systems change. The second goal was to allow participants to get to know people and organizations also interested in understanding how research and innovation initiatives can tackle sustainability issues through systems change.
